Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Handsome Molly
Apart from the 2 Grayson & Whitter recordings in 1927, the other 4 entries in Meade under 'Handsome Molly' have the title 'Hannah, My Love'. However, these are all by the Canova Family (Three Georgia Crackers) in 1930. The earliest printed reference given by Meade is: Michael C. Dean 'Flying Cloud & One Hundred and Fifty Other Old Time Songs & Ballads' Virginia, Minn: The Quickprint, 1922, pp 111-2.
